Farley and Spade have a definite chemistry, and they do their best to pick up the slack. [Blu-ray]

Against the odds of a feeble script and uninspired direction the duo do, in fact, grow on you, and there are a smattering of silly laughs.

Passably funny star vehicle. Nothing great.

May 22, 2003
A bone-headed farce that embraces its banality with sheer jubilation. Farley and Spade bring their inspired and nutty SNL antics to frenzied form.

Astounding for its number of effective gags, and it is a comedy that loses nothing on repeat viewings.
